Kristin Gallegos can make you look hot, not just hot but Vogue cover hot. This 60’s inspired New York City based Make up artist is one of the best in the U.S., and to prove it, her work has dawned the pages of Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazzaar, Elle, Purple Fashion, and more! Signed to the Wall Group, a fully integrated agency that focuses on providing its talent with the most effective and well-executed representation and based in LA and NYC, she has spread her wings and flourished. Born and raised in Long Beach, CA, she has been interested in fashion from a very young age. She studied classical ballet eight years before coming to the realization that she wanted more, and more was pursuing her love of beauty and fashion. She began her career by obtaining her esthetician license in an effort to develop a relationship with skincare, by doing so she developed a style and aesthetic all her own – to this day she believes one thing to be true about obtaining the perfect look.. the philosophy that there is an inextricable link between perfect makeup and perfect skin.
In 2004, Kristin moved to New York City where she really began to shine, starting with an assisting gig and working with artists including Dick Page and Lisa Butler. The training she gained provided her with the knowledge and experience it took to push her style of makeup artistry to the next level. Kristin’s sophisticated yet progressive style has led her to work with legendary photographers at the forefront of the fashion industry such as Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, Norman Jean Roy, Sebastian Kim, Dan Martensen, Yelena Yemchuk, among many others. You can find her dawning the backstage Fashion Week makeup dens in NYC and beyond, as well as almost every high fashion publication you can think of! The combination of Kristin’s expertise and attention to detail in her work, along with her amazing style personal and professional is why we here at Nakid love her!
